::Low Carb Recipe:: Avocado Fries
I’ve seen avocado fries floating around Pinterest for a while now, but every time I look at the recipe it never fits into my low carb lifestyle.
This is an easy fix – almond flour. Gotta love the stuff!
Tending towards being a purist when it comes to my food, I kept this very simple by only using a little salt in the flour to flavor the fries, but you can add spices, like onion or garlic powder, cumin, chili, pepper, etc., or even herbs, like a little freshly chopped (or dried) cilantro.
2 unripe Avocados
1-2 cups Almond Flour (enough to coat the fries)
1 tsp Celtic Sea Salt (more or less depending on how salty you like your fries)
freshly squeezed Lime Juice
Cilantro Dressing (I chose Trader Joe’s Cilantro Salad Dressing)
Bake: Preheat oven to 450 degrees and bake for 20 mins, then broil for 2 mins.
Fry: Heat up oil (I chose olive) in a pan and cooked on High for about 3-5 mins each side, depending on the size of the fry.
I bet you could turn them into make-shift paleo mozzarella sticks by putting basil in the almond flour and serving them with marinara sauce. My next attempt!
Would I try this recipe again? Yes!
